Oxford Archaeological Unit (OAU) conducted a watching brief at the Church of St Mary the Virgin, Kintbury, Berkshire, in January 1995. Work was carried out during works to underpin and buttress the NW corner of the N transept. The contractors were R.D.Smallbone Ltd of Newbury.
During three visits observations were made of brick infilling and a concrete layer which may represent previous attempts to manage subsidence problems. The similarity of brick type seen in the infilling to that of the bricks used to construct the S transept in the 18th century would suggest the work was carried out at the same time although the concrete slab is thought to be from 20th century.
A further area of exposed wall was given a suggested date as being part of the original 13th century structure. A single burial was revealed with coffin fittings which indicate a early-mid 19th century date. The bones were probably disturbed during the construction of the brick vaults.
